About Gourmet Garden
Gourmet Garden® is a registered trademark of the Botanical Food Company, located in Folsom, outside of Sacramento, California.  Launched in 1999, Gourmet Garden began because two scientists were not satisfied with the short season for fresh herbs and the flavor of dry herbs and spices. They discovered a unique process to cold-capture and store fresh chopped herbs and spices ensuring the best possible fresh flavor and aroma, with the highest value of nutrients.Most of Gourmet Garden’s herbs and spices are grown in the fertile soils of the Callide Valley in Central Queensland.
